Here comes the... babe. You're not desperate to lock up a commitment with a guy and dont look at your engaged friends with "Wh isnt it me?" envy. Sure, you love being part of a cozy duo, but you are cook hanging solo between relationships.
Your confidence (guy or no guy) gives you perspective in the dating game, says Nabncy Rosenbach, Ph.D., a psychologist in New York City and Long Island. "You dont drop everything in your life- like hobbies, your friends or evenother men you're casually seeing-when a promising guy enters the picture. "You're also carful to keep your romances in the present tense. So no matter how excited you are after the first month of great dinners/conversation/sex, you'll resist the urget to press him for a commitment talk or start scanning wedding magazines. "Your attitude is 'Why rush? Things are great right now'", says Rosenbach. As a result, your relationships unfold naturally and have a better chance of working out in the long run.

P.S. Keep in mind too, I am divorced, so it is natural for me to be in this mindset. I have done the married thing and need my time be free for a while. I am in no hurry to walk down that aisle again. No matter how perfect the guy is. Personally, the ideal mate for me is someone who shares the living together forever philosophy. Marriage is just a piece of paper, it is in your heart that you are truly married for life. :)
